Help with labs -- Leo or anyone That can interpret

Hi all.
I recently had labs for
Free t3. 3.1. Range (2.3-4.2)
Free t4. 1.4. (.08-1.8)
Reverse t3. 24. (8-25)

Labs taken before meds that morning. Meds.. Synthyroid 112mcg. 5mg compound t3
Thanks for your help!

I don't see any problem with your labs, but how do you feel?

Symptoms are as important as labs--which only really good thyroid doctors understand.

I feel good... my MD suggested on increasing the compound T3 to 10mg.. and take the synthyroid every other day.. I have for 3 days and yesterday felt overstimulated..like i had too much coffee.. calling to today to advise i was cutting back to the 5mg.. previously prescribed.

Thanks for checking in..

I totally agree with you about the T3. I take Cytomel (25 mcg), and my dosage was increased by 5 mcg over time (Hashi's conversion problems), and my endo always warns me to watch for exactly the symptoms you experienced.

Too much T3 can be dangerous, and if you feel OK, far better to cut back.

Your doctor's wanting to increase the dosage surprise me because my own endo won't do that unless my T3 is at the very bottom of the range--or doesn't register at all because it's so low.
